I just wanted to chime in. After finally getting communication with the oscilloscope setup I decided to try the modification. And it worked! I am using Python with the PyVISA library and the National Instruments VISA implementation. My 'scope is a DS1052E with 2.6.0.1 and hardware version 58.
I did a downgrade, executed the :INFO commands (:MODEL followed by :SERIAL) and upgraded back to 2.6.
Thank you to all for your work in getting this figured out and documented and making the necessary files available!
Here a couple of screen shots from the before and after as well as the little fast rise time oscillator I put together to make the tests.

Hay guys. The new fw 00.04.01.07.00 is easy to change the same way you do the others. Having ripped the fw apart with others you can change anything on it I.E the fw version too. Simple.

Hi Gizmo, hi GreySam

Sorry for the "Me Too" Post. I'm owner of a DS1052D with Firmware 00.04.01.00.02 too. I also want to upgrade my 50MHz Model to 100 MHz and i'm wondering if anybody have a "patched" firmware for the ds1052d...? Maybe its already answered in this thread, by i got lost after hours of reading...

GreySam, have you any further investigations to "our case"?

Thanks in advance.

If you search the 1052D update flash for :

E5 01 00 A8 61 08 08 05 10 09 60 89 E6 7D 00 50

and replace with

E5 01 00 A8 61 08 08 05 10 01 60 89 E6 7D 00 50

(Change the 09 for a 01 at offset 9)

Then flash with that firmware, you should be working at 100Mhz. One other person, zdoe, did this last july. If you ask him nicely he may still have his custom flash file (although I dont remember the version)... :)

Hi Gizmo,

thank you very much for your help, your patch works on 1052D with latest FW 00.04.01 SP7.

You are the greatest  ;)

GreySam


Thank you for the info ... just did it to my 1052D with firmware 00.04.01 SP7

Hi-

I'm new to this forum.  I have a DS1052E with 00.04.01 SP7 at 50MHz and want to upgrade it to 100MHz.  I tried updating it with modified 00.04.01.00.02.  The scope recognizes my USB stick but does not give me an option to upgrade.  Is there a version of FW out that will work and is accessible.?

Thanks much.   ^-^

Analog Dude. make sure the fw is not in a folder or zip file. Put the fw direct on the usb stick and the scope should pick it up. hope this helps..

Hi Stray Cat-

I did put the RGL file on the root directory.  Nothing else on the memory stick.  As I said, the DS recognises the USB stick but doesn't offer to upgrade.  My guess is that it sees the 00.04.01.02 software as older then the 00.04.01 SP7 that is on it.

I had put updated the firmware on the scope to 00.04.01 SP7 previously using the same memory stick.

Thanks.

Hi all,

It seems I need 00.04.01 SP7  (which I believe is the same as 00.04.01.07.00) or later to do the upgrade.  Is this available?


Thanks.

Hi guys just a quick question... When using the scope the BANDWIDTH LIMITER auto switches to on. Does anyone else have this problem?

Hey everyone.

Just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone who has worked on this project.  I just received my DS1052E in the mail yesterday.  Fired it up, plugged in a usb stick with the modified 00.04.01.07.00 firmware from Corsaore's last post...  worked like a charm.  Thanks again everyone!

Regards.

Has anyone done this recently? I just picked up a 1052E and am looking forward to having a scope, but also being able to save $70 by using the software mod.

I did it a few months ago. Unzip this file and put the RGL file on a flash drive. Then follow the instructions mentioned earlier in this thread to upgrade the scope.

Good luck!
Matt

EDIT: Sorry, file is 1399kB, and this forum only allows up to 1000. Had to go with a sendspace link instead: https://www.sendspace.com/file/hasl0h

Well, I tried putting that file on an empty flash drive, putting it into the scope, rebooting it and nothing....

I think mine has a newer version of the firmware.... 00.04.01.07.00 (00.04.01 SP7)

I would try the hex hack, but I don't have this firmware to edit....

I tired both the version you linked, and the MudMan link... and neither will prompt the scope to update...

1) Did you ensure you unzipped the file, and ONLY had the .rgl file on the flash drive?
2) Did you ensure the flash drive was formatted properly? I think it needs to be formatted as FAT32, not NTFS (Please read the thread to verify this)

Yes... only the RGL file was on the drive.

I tried formatting it as FAT32 and FAT16.


***EDIT - Well, I was using a 4GB flash drive that was given to me from a training class I took (branded Schneider Electric, don't know who actually made the thing). For the laughs of it, I took an old 1GB flash drive and tried it. Still wouldn't see the file.

I finally took a USB media card reader, and put the file on a 1GB SD card. Plugged that into the scope and it greets me with the same version message. Write it to the scope and it worked! I'm now at 2ns!

Guess it didn't like the 4GB stick... even though I could write to it with the scope with no problems... Weird...

Now... Time to crack into the project that prompted me to buy this scope in the first place.... getting my Tektronix 485 back running!

Does anyone have the MD5 checksum for the 00.04.01.07.00 hack firmware. Want to ensure file is ok before loading to scope.

Hi there,

i recently discovered the possibility to hack my DS1052E so i instantly checked the firmware version of my scope. It's a 02.05 SP2 (00.02.05.02.00), HW 58 which makes it necessary to downgrade it to version 02.02.

I've seen the post which is linked at the first page concerning the downgrade: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/blog/changing-the-rigol-ds1052e-to-ds1102e-using-usb-the-dummy-guide/msg42404/#msg42404

Unfortunately the hacked upgrade-file to downgrade the scope from 02.05 SP2 to 02.02 SP2 which is mentioned in the post by A Hellene is down, respectively all attachements before a certain date are not available anymore  :(  although A Hellene has described what he has done i'm not sure enough to do it by myself. I don't want to brick my scrope. So can anyone send me the right upgrade-file oder show me a download-link? (Maybe it's somewhere between page 42 and 110, I skipped through the pages on a random basis but coudn't find any helpful hints and I don't have time to read the whole thread. Actually, I originally didn't want to make a big deal of hacking the scope  ::) )

Thanks for any hints and help!

Btw sry for my bad english,
regards from Germany ;-)

Why don't you update to the newest cracked version? No need to downgrade, change serial number and re-upgrade?!?

Someone may prefer to have a scope that can be updated by stock firmware and still retain all features.

Unfortunately, all files that was used to downgrade my own scope in the past was lost in HDD crash.
